I also have no practical advice for you, but just wanted to say that it all sounds like so much fun! I wonder if you can hook up with someone else who is also doing the dance and practice together, that would certainly help me if I were doing it!
Anyway, it really sounds like a good time, so have fun with it!
Loving yourself is an act of will. It doesn't just happen, you have to choose it.
